Greetings Nobles,  

I know we are all very busy with our summer activities, so I thought I had better get out a little communication.  As I write this, I am headed out to the Imperial Shrine Session in Daytona Beach.  As always, it should be a great time.  

I will be flying back to Billings for the festivities surrounding the Annual East West Shrine Football Game July 14th and 15th.  I hope you have all made plans to attend.  We will try to get together as a Divan while we are in Billings.  By doing that, THERE WILL BE NO MEETING IN HELENA JULY 18TH.  As well, we will not meet in August.  I will have Larry Vervick send out the monthly statements so that everyone is informed on the business of the Temple.  

The September meeting once again will be held away from Helena – to be scheduled in conjunction with the September Ceremonial in Belgrade September 15 and 16.  Please spread the word.  I will soon email registration forms as well as posting the form on the Algeria web site.   

CLUBS & UNITS:  Please remind your nobles on recruiting new members for this ceremonial. We are planning a fun time for all and it should be a Huge Parade!

On other news:  About a month ago, 1st Ceremonial Master Dennis McSweeney resigned his position due to personal reasons.  I have always enjoyed being around Dennis and he will be missed; but I wish him the best with his future endeavors.  I have appointed Bernd Hoffmann to assume the office of 1st Ceremonial Master for the remainder of the year.  Bernd has been a loyal member of the Finance Committee for some time.  He has a very good understanding of the operations of the Temple and will be a great asset to the Divan.  I’m also pleased to announce the appointment of Mike Allen as Outer Guard for Algeria Temple.  I have personally known Mike for well over 30 years.  Mike has been handling the Insurance needs for our Temple for several years, so it is nice to have yet another noble with a great deal of knowledge joining the Divan.  

 Well, that's about it for this time.  Looking forward to seeing you all in Billings !

Algeria Shriners are on Facebook! Like Us...

posted Jan 19, 2016, 8:17 PM by Rick Robinson   [ updated Jan 28, 2017, 3:39 AM ]

Did you know that Algeria Shriners have a page on Facebook?
It is right here (check it out):
Now... you may say something about how you do not like Facebook, or that is not what you do, or "face-what?" or something like that... but it is a powerful tool and it reaches Shriners plus family and friends of Shriners throughout the world!  
It also reaches potential Shriners (remember... those guys younger than you).  
When potential members want to know more about an organization, company, or non-profit, one of the first things they do is search the web and the second thing they do is see if there is a Facebook page (and if people "like" it).
So... here is what YOU need to do TODAY:
1) Go to the link above and LIKE our page 
2) Post a picture of a recent Algeria Shrine event (parade), a picture of your favorite Shriner, a picture of your horse in your Fez, your Shrine Club, or anything Shrine-related (as long as it is respectable) 
3) Post about an upcoming Shrine Club or Parade Unit event 
4) Check in tomorrow and see who likes you posts and pictures 
5) Repeat steps 2-4 

Share what you love about Algeria Shriners - Post it on our Facebook Page! 

Algeria Photos?

posted Jan 5, 2014, 10:53 AM by Rick Robinson   [ updated Jan 28, 2017, 3:39 AM ]

Do you have photos?  

Do you have photos from recent Algeria or other Shriner events that would like to share with the rest of our temple (and other temples)?  If so, please send them to:  

And we will get them posted on our website.  

If they are too big (get bounced), please send an email anyway and we can setup another method to get the files transferred (i.e. Dropbox, Google Docs, etc.).
